Abuse doesn't have to be physical. It can be emotional as well. At least from what I observed, her only purpose to him was to give him something to fuck. Seemed pretty abusive to me.
and if you continued to watch the show, you'd realize that her only purpose for him was someone to fuck too and that she is actually the shit head in the relationship.

I'm sorry, but I can't believe I'm debating a show with someone who only watched maybe 50% of it and is telling me how these characters are portrayed.

There's an episode based solely around how she was exactly the same towards him, if not worse. I get where the foundation of your complaints are based, but they're not valid in the context of this show. You would know that had you watched the full season.

From what you've said, it doesn't sound like it gets any better. If the whole show is just people treating other people like shit without anyone really learning from their mistakes or even realizing they made a mistake then I don't really see the point in watching in. I watch TV to be entertained, not get depressed and watching Girls just got me depressed because it seemed to think it was somehow "ok" for a 'relationship' to be that shitty. Maybe I'd like it more if I watched the whole show but the point remains that from what I watched I a) didn't really like it and don't think it deserves the acclaim it gets b) still understand why people like it and why it gets that acclaim and c) Parks and Rec deserved a best commedy emmy nom

Everyone in here agrees Parks deserved an Best Comedy nod. That was never the argument here. Parks is a much better show that continually gets snubbed by the Academy.

I watched 3 episodes and it just seems like a repeat formula of 30 minutes of everyone belittling/hating each other with heavy expletives.

There's a large amount of critics who've mirrored my exact statement at some point during the show's run so far. I highly doubt they're all wrong. Even Dunham herself has said in numerous interviews that she's writing about what she knows. Who better to make a show like this than someone who's living it?

Veep is one of the funniest new shows of the season. I'd rank it 3rd or 4th amongst comedies.

It's from Armando Ianucci, I'm sure you've heard of him.

So, they are filming Parks and Rec in DC. Another intern and I went searching today, but, we missed it. I'm really hoping to catch some filming tomorrow.

Hopefully, miraculously, Leslie gets to meet Biden.
